Tony Perez- just look at how he called the Ali- Wepner fight. Norton-Cooney etc….
I despise how Tony Weeks referees the clinch.
Didn't Muhammad Ali refer to Tony Perez as a dirty ref after the Chuck Wepner bout in 1975?
I know he kept telling him how Wepner was hitting him in the back of the head which he was and he did nothing finally Ali hit Wepner in the back of the head
Months after the broadcast on ABC's Wide World Of Sports, Tony Perez took Muhammad Ali to court for Defamation, I am not sure how that ended up.
No, Laurence Cole and Richard steele are the 2 worst. Cole was the most incompetent and Steele was the most corrupt.
Put the chump who just stopped the Russell Bartelemy fight in the mix
He's probably up there, but there's being a lot worse.
Alfred Asaro from Nigel Benn vs Gerald McClellan has to be a contender.
Jersey Joe Walcott was the worst. He robbed Liston of the Lewiston fight in 1965. He never started a count because Ali wouldn't go to a neutral corner. Yet he called Liston out. I think he was bought and paid for.
I've seen far worse, and have heard about worse than I've even seen. Didn't Wyatt Earp referee a fight once?
Taylor suffered a broken eye socket, broken ribs, badly busted up face, had a lot of blood pumped from his stomach, was ****ing blood for weeks and was in hospital for almost 2 weeks following the fight.
That March 17 1990 title unification fight at 140 lbs ended the career of Meldrick Taylor, Julio Caesar Chavez used his tenacity and punching power to persevere. referee Richard Steele made the right call, why see a man beaten to death for the jollies of some fight fans. A human life is far more important than a victory in the ring, I love boxing too.
